And after practicing my knitting and finding a fab project book in the charity shop I set about making a phone case to keep my new phone cosy and warm in this cold weather.
I'm really glad I have gone back to basics with knitting as I always used to lose my place with whatever project I was working on because I couldn't tell whether I needed to start with a knit or a purl stitch this would lead to losing interest in the project and it becoming an forever work in progress.
The knitting know how book has given me the the confidence to tell my purl stitch from my knit stitch with it's clear pictures and instructions I'm starting to feel confident with my knitting. I was able to put down and pick up my knitting and know exactly what to do next. I even used the proper method to join the seams! I love the way the stripes formed with the variegated yarn and I still have quite a bit of yarn left and might just make some wrist warmers. As you can see my new phone is now nice and cosy with not a dropped stitch in sight!
